Russian Visa Requirements to Fly Transaero’s New Route

October 15th, 2010
Per Jaunted, visiting Russia from the US just got easier and cheaper, especially if you happen to live in the Southeast. That's because Transaero, a small Russian airline, has just begun direct, non-stop flights from Miami to Moscow. And at least for the moment, the new route is also surprisingly affordable, with flights as low as $560. Of course, while direct flights may make it easier to get to Russia, you'll never get off the ground without a Russian visa. Alas, getting a Russian visa is nowhere near as simple as booking a plane ticket online. Here's a quick rundown of the requirements: A valid US passport.

Soon, EU Citizens May Not Need a Russian Visa

September 18th, 2010
Good news for citizens of countries that are part of the European Union: Soon, according to this post on the Nileguidance blog, you may be able to skip the Kafkaesque Russian visa process and still visit your Russian neighbors. Russia and EU have been working on visa-free travel for years, since 2003. What's changed?

Russian Visa Requirements To Explore the Mysteries of Tunguska

May 11th, 2010
On June 30th, 1908, something happened deep in the forests of Siberia, near the Tunguska River. A powerful explosion, one large enough to have completely wiped a city the size of London or New York off the map, shook the forest, leaving scarcely a tree standing.  (h/t NileGuide) Nobody is entirely sure what happened-despite evidence that the blast was as powerful as 185 Hiroshimas, it didn't leave a crater.  According to the NASA website, the local people believed that the god Ogdy had cursed the area. Here's how one of them described the blast to researchers many years later: Suddenly in the north sky… the sky was split in two, and high above the forest the whole northern part of the sky appeared covered with fire… At that moment there was a bang in the sky and a mighty crash


Russia and Chinese Visa Requirements To Ride the Trans-Siberian Railroad

May 7th, 2010
The longest railroad in the world, the Trans-Siberian Railroad connects Russia with Mongolia, China and the Sea of Japan. It is subdivided into three different routes for travelers to choose from: the Trans-Mongolian, which takes you from Beijing through Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia and on to Moscow (or vice-versa); the Trans-Manchurian, which takes you from Siberia through Manchuria to Beijing, and the Trans-Siberian, which will take from Moscow to Vladivostok. Of course, there are many interesting places to stop along the way.  You can either ride the Trans-Siberian railroad as part of a tour group or on your own, although naturally if you travel independently you will have more flexibility when it comes to how much time you spend where.
